Find peace

how to have peace with god

gOD HAS A PLAN FOR EACH ONE OF US...

He created  us for a reason.  He  wants to be with us and He wants each one of us to  have a meaningful and  abundant life here and eternal life with Him in  Heaven.  What does the Bible say about this?

"I [Jesus} came that they may have life and have it abundantly."  John 10:10

  "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."  John 3:16

 What happened to God’s plan?  Why are there so many who don’t know Him? 

Even though God made us to love Him and to be with Him, He does not force us to do so.  God allows us to make our own choices. The problem is that we have chosen to disobey God.  This causes us to be separated from the very One who loves us the most, from the very One who made us to be with Him.  What does the Bible say about this?

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."  Romans 3:23

 "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."   Romans 6:23

Jesus Christ willingly gave His life on the cross, was buried in a tomb and rose again after three days. 

He did this to pay the price for the sins of every man, woman, boy, and girl who lives, who has ever lived, and who will ever live.  Jesus did this for us because of God’s love for us.  What does the Bible say about this?

"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."  John 14:6

  "But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8

God provided a way for us to be with Him but everyone must make the choice.

Through Jesus Christ we can know that we will live with God for eternity!  Because of His mercy we no longer have to be separated from God and through His grace we can receive forgiveness for our sins.  What does the Bible say about this?

"Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

 "Behold, I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,  I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20

 "But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."  John 1:12

The gift of Salvation cost God’s only Son, Jesus Christ, His life!  
The cost of Salvation to us?  Nothing.  
It is a free gift offered to each of us by God the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ. 

Here are four easy steps to accepting this free gift of eternal life:

1.  Admit that you need God.
 “I am a sinner"

2.  Be willing to say you’re sorry.
“I repent of my sins”

3.  Believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God,  paid for your sins by dying for
you on the Cross and rising from the dead three days later.
“I believe in Jesus Christ”

4.  Ask Jesus Christ to save you and to control  your life through the
power of the Holy Spirit.
 “I accept Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior”

What is your choice?  Will you pray to receive Christ and His  gift of abundant and eternal life? 

Pray this – speak to God in your heart and mind – out loud too if you wish :

“Dear Jesus, I know that because of my sin I need Your  forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins. I believe You rose again  so I could live with You.  I want to stop living for myself and start living for You. I want Your peace in my  life. I want forgiveness for my sins. Please come into my heart and change my life. I want to live with You forever.  I want You to be my  Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ name.  Amen.”
